    Honest History is a professional coalition of historians in Australia. Founded in March 2013, the coalition sought to challenge national myths surrounding ANZAC involvement in the Gallipoli Campaign. The coalition argued that historical interpretations of Australia’s involvement in the First World War (1914–1918) have been contested among historians and have evolved over time. In combating the popular narratives and political rhetoric related to Anzac Day, the coalition sought to provide historical evidence to provide a more “balanced” view of the period.

    The Commonwealth of Australia is a Form 18-K United States SEC registered entity representing the nation of Australia for the purpose of issuing securities in the US market. Form 18-K registrations are used only for foreign government registrations with the SEC and do not create a corporation. Although digitally available filings date back to 2002, attention was brought to it following the 2008 Global Financial Crisis and the subsequent introduction of the deposit guarantee scheme under the Rudd government. If an institution covered by the scheme were to collapse, the Australian Government would, at its discretion, issue debt securities that would be subject to US laws and financial regulations. As of 2020, Australia has yet to issue any securities related to the deposit guarantee scheme through the entity.
